Becomes Member to Implement Seniority Project


Malta has become the 14th EU National Office to implement the Seniority Project. The Maltese office joins Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Sweden, the Slovak Republic, Bulgaria, Benelux, Slovenia, Ireland, Hungary, Portugal, the Czech Republic and Romania in implementation.

Having accurate seniority data is important for Community trade mark owners who have previously registered an identical mark in an EU member state which has been surrendered or allowed to lapse. The project, a part of OHIM´s Cooperation Fund, involves establishing links between entries in the national and Community databases and making the information accessible online.
